The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to build a community where people value animals and treat them with respect and kindness. For more than 128 years, WHS has been saving the lives of animals in need. We offer adoption services that place 9,000 animals in new homes annually, veterinary services that save thousands of lives, educational programs that instill respect for animals, behavior services to assist guardians and a myriad of other initiatives that help end suffering for animals. We depend entirely on private donations to fund our programs and rely on volunteers in nearly every department. If you are interested in adopting, volunteering, enrolling in a class, taking a tour or making a donation, check out our comprehensive web site at wihumane.org. The adoptable animals' web pages are updated every 30 minutes!
Due to popular demand, the Wisconsin Humane Society is once again offering our Stop the Pulling Seminar. This class is a lesson in loose leash walking for a dog and her guardian. This one-time class will teach your dog to walk on a leash without pulling (in a game-like lesson) using reward-based training. If your dog is taking YOU for a walk, consider bringing him to WHS’ next Stop the Pulling workshop on Wednesday, September 9 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. This class is for dogs of all ages who need some extra assistance walking politely on leash.The fee for our Stop the Pulling class is $20, and all proceeds go to the animals at the Wisconsin Humane Society.
